Friends, family, and other members of the community are contributing to an online crowdfunding campaign to support the Tortola family of Natick after their home in the Wethersfield area was destroyed by fire earlier this month. Fortunately, family members were physically unharmed, though their personal belongings and long-time on-site daycare facility were destroyed.
The fundraising site includes this poignant anecdote: “After learning that the house was deemed uninhabitable, not surprisingly her first concern was for her daycare families and her ‘kids’. As a top priority, she immediately sprang into action trying to identify alternative care to minimize disruption as she looks for a temporary location.”
Funds raised will address the family’s short-term needs, loss of income, and expenses that insurance won’t cover as they start to rebuild.
